Church Fundraising Ideas

At Bergen Designs we’ve helped churches, garden clubs, schools and individuals raise millions for their projects and causes. Please call us and talk to us about our various fundraising ideas including:

  • “Stone by Stone” – use our Customized Flagstone Pavers with custom inscriptions to build a “living walkway”, commemorating the milestones of your church or organization – perfect for building funds!
  • “In Memory” – our Custom Memorial Benches are perfect for Meditation Walkways, Hospital Gardens, Healing Landscapes, etc.
  • Customized Benches for Alumni Member Contributions to Colleges, Zoos, Botanical Gardens, Parks, etc.

Bergen Designs can help with fundraising that many organizations go through for building projects through a memorial bench and stepping stone donation program from its alumni members or individual/family contributions. Our benches are the most natural looking and appealing you can find anywhere compared to standard granite or concrete benches that look man made.


We ship directly to you with instructions for assembly that take less than an hour to complete. No foundation is needed underneath the benches as long as the area is relatively flat and not a sloping hillside.

The cost for the memorial benches range from $699 and up depending on the style and the donations tend to be 3-4 times the amount per bench or more. For example, donations tend to be in the $2,000- $5,000 range and it gives the donation giver the chance to have a lifetime memorial bench placed on the property with an inscription.

Some testimonials showing success with fundraising/donation bench programs-

“Our building fundraising project for the church was a great success in part to the help of Scott at Bergen Designs for the lovely benches and stones that parishioners chose to be placed on the church property”

“Here are a few pictures of the rooftop garden, ”Tahoe Terrace East”. As you can see, the benches are a nice complement to the area. Hopefully this is just the first phase and we’ll be adding more in the near future. Thanks again for getting these to us on such a short notice. There have been many positive comments and questions as to where I found the benches. I look forward to doing business with you again”.

“Just wanted to let you know that the bench and stones arrived as scheduled a couple of days ago. It really looks great. We will be working to develop the site where it will be placed at and will get you pics once everything is set up”.
Thanks again for the great work,
